Neuzugänge Juli 2016

Vor lauter Urlaub und Festivals habe ich es gar nicht geschafft meine Neuzugänge vorzustellen. Zum Glück sind wir noch vor dem fünfzehnten und daher denke ich, das hier zählt noch. Es war gar nicht so viel, ist mir eben beim Zählen aufgefallen. Abgesehen davon, dass ich beinahe ausschließlich Bücher von Paige Toon gelesen habe. Durch das Camp habe ich auch kaum gelesen, dafür mein Buch beendet, was ja auch nicht schlecht ist. Doch dafür gibt es noch einen extra Post. Los gehts mit den Neuzugängen!

Thirteen WeddingsThirteen Weddings von Paige Toon
A year ago, Bronte left Sydney for a wedding in England, where she met newly single Alex. After one amazing night together they parted ways.

Now working on the picture desk for a glassy magazine in London, Bronte is about to meet a new colleague – who turns out to be all too familiar. Alex is now engaged, but the memory of the spark they felt when they met hasn’t died. As Alex’s wedding day looms, it is clear that he and Bronte have unfinished business…

Eliza is in love with someone who is no longer hers. In fact, he probably never was… And her dream of becoming a successful musician seems to be vanishing before her eyes.

An exclusive eBook short story from Paige Toon!

One Perfect Christmas picks up with Alice and Joe one year on… He’s a bigger star than ever, and Alice has managed to maintain her anonymity. But how long can that last? Will this be their first – and last – perfect Christmas? And where is Lukas?

Snuggle up in front of the fire to read this magical wintery short story about what happened next…

Always with loveAlways With Love von Giovanna Fletcher
Sophie’s got used to being the girlfriend of Billy Buskin, the biggest movie star in the world. Sort of.

But when she and Billy take a trip to visit his family in Los Angeles, she quickly discovers she’s totally unprepared for the chaos of Hollywood, the paparazzi and Billy’s controlling mother.

And when Billy extends his stay in LA, leaving Sophie to fly home to Rosefont Hill alone, it seems there’s more than just miles between them.

Now Sophie must decide if they can overcome their differences for good. Because not every love story lasts the distance . . .

One perfect summerOne Perfect Summer von Paige Toon
‚And you still love him?‘
‚Every second of every minute of every hour of every day…‘

While on holiday in Dorset one summer, Alice meets Joe, a guy working at the local pub. She’s eighteen and on the brink of starting university, while Joe’s life is seemingly going nowhere. But despite their differences, the pair fall hopelessly and desperately in love. And then summer comes to an end and they are dramatically torn apart.

Alice heads off to university in Cambridge where she gets a part-time job punting on the River Cam and slowly picks up the pieces of her broken heart. One day Lukas – a gorgeous golden boy from Cambridge University – spies her and it’s not long before Alice falls for his charms.

Months turns into years, but then Joe comes back into Alice’s life again in a way that she could never have imagined. While Alice lives her ordinary life with Lukas, she has to watch from the sidelines as Joe’s life becomes evermore extraordinary. She never stopped loving him, but he’s out of her reach now, surely? And what about Lukas?

the sun in her eyesThe Sun in Her Eyes von Paige Toon
Blinding sunshine… A bend in the road… What became of the little girl with the sun in her eyes?

Amber was three when a car crash stole her mother’s life. She doesn’t remember the accident, but a stranger at the scene has been unable to forget. Now, almost thirty years later, she’s trying to track Amber down.

Amber, meanwhile, is married to Ned and living on the other side of the world in London. When her father has a stroke, she flies straight home to Australia to be with him. Away from her husband, Amber finds comfort in her oldest friends, but her feelings for Ethan, the gorgeous, green-eyed man she once fell for, have never been platonic.

Always the BridesmaidAlways the Bridesmaid von Lindsey Kelk
Maddie Fraser has never been anything other than the girl in the background: golden boy Dan’s little sister, crazy Shona’s minion, workaholic Sebastian’s ex and now she’s also the girl in the middle of her warring best friends.

Lauren has announced she’s getting married – just as Sarah’s husband asks her for a divorce. Nothing in Maddie’s career in event organising has prepared her for this particular combo of planning and real pain. The news that her ex is also tying the knot is the final straw. While the magazines say she should be leaning in, all she wants to do is sleep in. But whether she likes it or not, everything is about to change for Maddie. For better or worse, this grown-up bridesmaid is taking centre stage…

It felt like a kissIt Felt Like a Kiss von Sarra Manning
Meet Ellie Cohen, one of the most perfect girls in London.

Ellie manages a swank Mayfair gallery, but it’s her life that’s a real work of art. Great job, really good hair, loyal friends, loving family. It’s only her succession of lame duck boyfriends that ruin the picture.

Oh, and the world-famous rock-star father she’s never met, who won’t even acknowledge her existence.

Then Ellie’s perfect life is smashed to pieces when her secret is sold to the highest bidder and her name, face (and pictures of her bottom) are splashed across the tabloids. Suddenly everyone thinks she’s a gold-digging, sex-crazy, famewhore.

Enter David Gold. Charming and handsome David Gold. On paper he’s even more perfect than Ellie, if only he wasn’t her father’s ruthlessly ambitious lawyer whose job is to manage the crisis – and her. He certainly doesn’t think that Ellie’s the innocent party and she doesn’t trust him at all. So why is it that every time they’re alone together, damage limitation is the last thing on their minds?

Das verrückte Leben der Jessie JeffersonDas verrückte Leben der Jessie Jefferson von Paige Toon
An Jessies 15. Geburtstag verunglückt ihre Mutter tödlich – ohne je verraten zu haben, wer ihr leiblicher Vater ist. Außer sich vor Trauer und Wut, entlockt Jessie ihrem Stiefvater das schockierende Geheimnis: Ihr Erzeuger ist der Mega-Rockstar Johnny Jefferson, der nichts von ihrer Existenz ahnt! Klar, dass Jessie ihren berühmten Dad unbedingt treffen will, doch der Besuch im sonnigen Kalifornien, wo Johnny mit seiner Familie lebt, verläuft zunächst holprig. Dank des heißen Nachwuchsmusikers Jack findet Jessie schließlich Gefallen an der Glitzerwelt von L.A. Aber kann sie in dieser Glamourwelt wirklich bestehen?

Das Jahr, in dem sich Kurt Cobain das Leben nahmDas Jahr, in dem sich Kurt Cobain das Leben nahm von Jessie Ann Foley
Es ist das Jahr 1993. Bill Clinton wird Präsident der USA und Nirvana veröffentlichen ihr drittes Album »In Utero«. In diesem Jahr zieht Maggie mit ihrer Familie von Chicago nach Bray, einen verschlafenen Ort an der irischen Küste. Sie muss viel zurücklassen, besonders aber vermisst sie ihren chaotischen Onkel Kevin: nur zehn Jahre älter, seines Zeichens Rockmusiker und größter lebender Nirvana-Fan. Aller Anfang ist schwer. Immerhin ist da Eoin, der Maggie mit seinem unergründlichen Lächeln ziemlich durcheinanderbringt. Doch während die beiden sich näherkommen, erreicht Maggie eine furchtbare Nachricht: Onkel Kevin ist gestorben! Alles, was Maggie von ihm bleibt: Zwei Tickets für ein Nirvana-Konzert in Rom. Und ein Brief, in dem er Maggie auffordert, sich unbedingt auf den Weg zu machen und dabei den Jungen mitzunehmen, den sie liebt. Und Maggie? Setzt sich über alle Verbote hinweg und wagt den Trip nach Rom. Zusammen mit Eoin …
